Roslyn Pioneer Cemetery

See the remnants of the patchwork of 24 different cultures that worked in the coal mines at the Roslyn Pioneer Cemetery.

It was difficult to overstate the importance of the coal jobs to the Roslyn community. Even though the work was physically exhausting and very dangerous immigrants came from all over the world to work in the mines, lured in part by the Northern Pacific Railroad’s recruiting efforts in Europe. There were 24 different nationalities at one time in Roslyn, with 24 different fraternal organizations, 24 different taverns, and 24 different sections of the graveyard. You can see remnants of this patchwork of cultures the Rolsyn Pioneer Cemetery.
